Japanese mayonnaise can be mixed with Worcestershire Sauce (Lea & Perrins) OR Soy Sauce to make the dressing for this salad. If you use Worcestershire Sauce, I recommend to cook Chicken with ‘Herbs A’. If you use Soy Sauce, cook with ‘Herbs B’. Whichever flavour, the creamy dressing goes so well with Celery, that even my son, who hates celery, enjoys this salad.
